International student enrollment at renowned German universities made possible by the Schloss-Schule Kirchberg
KIRCHBERG AN DER JAGST, Germany, Dec. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- Why German language skills do not have to stand in the way of studying

German university degrees enjoy an excellent global reputation, particularly in 
technical and natural science subjects. In addition: German universities charge 
little or no tuition fees. The country is also considered the epitome of 
international stability. Despite this, many international students are unsure 
about studying in Germany. One German boarding school, the Schloss-Schule 
Kirchberg, wants to help change that - and has therefore specialized in giving 
international students access to renowned German universities. The 
Schloss-Schule is convinced that attending a specialized boarding school can 
give foreign students decisive support.

The German language is considered one of the biggest hurdles to attending 
school or university in Germany. Therefore, the Schloss-Schule has set up a 
high school prep course that specializes in meeting the needs of foreign 
students. In close cooperation with the school, they aim to help young people 
learn German and acquire the language skills they need to enroll in school and, 
later, university - even without previous language knowledge. The results speak 
for themselves: The last year of international school leavers from the 
Schloss-Schule achieved an average of 10.5 points out of a total of 15 - 4.5 
points better than the overall school average with a high percentage of native 

Many foreign students also perceive the often very foreign German culture and 
the complex German educational system as a hurdle on the way to studying in 
Germany. But here, too, a specialized boarding school like the Schloss-Schule 
Kirchberg offers decisive assistance: firstly, by providing foreign students 
with comprehensive support from day one (airport pick-up, visa support, etc.) 
as well as an especially insightful introduction to the German culture and 
educational system. Above all, however, because the Schloss-Schule has two very 
decisive advantages: 1. Particularly intensive supervision, exemplified among 
other things by a student to teacher/educator ratio of 1:6. 2. Around 85% of 
students (consisting of both boarding and day students) are German, ensuring 
that foreign students are immersed in German language and culture through the 
predominantly German student body. Read more:
